You know, I just don't think he'd do all that well if he closed his eyes and pretended he was in the Georgia Dome. QB's with their eyes closed throw so many interceptions.

That first interception was a pass interference on the NO Linebacker. He just ran right into Roddy White. While the ball was in the air. Who knows what would have happened if that linebacker does not just do that. Contrast that with the ticky tack call on Peterson against Bush. I mean really which of those were calls that should have been made.

The 2nd int was just two damn good plays. Vilma jumping up and getting a hand on it, and the CB made one heck of a catch off his shoe tops.

And the last well, hail mary time.

But I will say, Matt did not look good at times. But that ball that Jenkins dropped was perfectly thrown.
